The lovely Posey Pony is visiting us from Minnesota this week. Nikki’s Posey is such a lovely girl. She loves to do girly things, so after having Super Pickle here (who was super bored with us girls) we were happy to host a girly, girl. Unfortunately, we didn’t have anything exiting planned for the weekend. We spent alot of time riding around in the car. It was sunny all weekend, but not terribly warm so we really couldn’t get out and trot around. Posey said, “It looks awfully scrubby around here”. I had to explain to her that about 3 feet of snow had just melted and everything was grey and muddy. I told her she’d have to come back in the spring when everything was lush and green.
We headed down town and stopped at my former restaurant for coffee on Saturday morning. (there’s my big red espresso machine in the background…oh, how I miss that machine!)
Posey had the Hot Vanilla with lots of whipped cream. She even licked the cup clean!
She got passed around the table and had a little visit with everyone. My sister got to talking about her upcoming vacation to NC and I think Posey was trying to talk her into stowing her away so she could go to. I explained that she had a schedule to keep and that JavaJunkee was expecting her. She wasn’t happy that I foiled her plans because she really wanted to head somewhere warmer.
Next stop, Lake Erie. The ice was starting to break up a bit and Posey was so exited she leaped out of the car and galloped right for one of the pieces of ice. I told her to be careful because you never know when the ice will become unstable. She said, “What do you know about stable?” Sassy little pony! She thought the ice would make for a great photo op so she hopped from ice block to ice block…
She then shouted, “I bet I can float away on this piece of ice like they do in Rudolph!” I said, “Hold on just a minute, Yukon, you’d better not try that stunt. This isn’t Hollywood.”
She didn’t listen and before I knew it she was off onto another chunk of ice. She was so fast I could barely keep up with her. She wanted to stay and play but we humans were getting cold and it was time to go.
We got a bit dirty at the lake so we came home, got cleaned up and then Posey decided she’d like to play with some of my daughter’s pet shop critters. They set up a dance floor and away they went…
And then Ridley heard all the ruckus and had to stick his nose in and disrupt the dance party. Posey seemed to have fun with us these past few days – even though we didn’t make it to a real dance floor. I didn’t even have to hide my wine – she was so busy she didn’t even think about drinking! She’s on her way to JavaJunkee’s now…get out your disco clothes and 70’s makup, JJ. She digs that era!
